10.  It's got to be 24 hours...but

 

Pretty obscure questions...had to Google just about everything.

I raced SCCA 1965-1970.  In between I got drafted.  I started with a 1961 Bugeye Sprite, then a Lotus S7.  I also raced a little CanAm--McKee Chevrolet Mk III

My big dream was to race at Le Mans--well, along with everyone else.  

But I went back to college instead.

I'm going for Nick Mason, Gordon Murray, McLaren F1, Harrods, Leo Mansell, Greg Mansell, Alex Brundle, and I'd be completely guessing (or resorting to cheating with google) for the rest!
